About Emily E. Axelrod

Work & Hobbies
Curriculum Vitae

For more than a decade, I've been developing my expertise as an English teacher and English tutor in the New Jersey (NJ) and New York (NY) areas, so that your English language arts skills can improve. It's an asset to become a thoughtful reader and a solid writer even if your career is unrelated to English. Plus, life is more interesting when we can make sense of all the media saturating our society. One of my greatest joys is to guide students from confusion or apathy to empowerment and enthusiasm. As we work together I hope to cultivate your love of reading and writing as I help you with essays, applications, workplace writing, test preparation, and more.


Here's more about me:


  • I’m a college English professor who began as an English Language Arts teacher in the New York City schools.


  • Trained by a nationwide tutoring service, I now do private tutoring in one-on-one or small group sessions, and also work for a local tutoring center and So, you can either hire me through my personal business, or through one of my employers.


  • I have a Bachelor of Arts in Literature and a Master of Arts in English, with extra coursework in adolescent psychology.


  • In addition to my background as an educator, I also have more than 10 years of experience working as a paralegal at a midtown Manhattan law firm.


  • This blend of academic and corporate skills makes me a more dynamic tutor. I'm just as comfortable instructing someone in junior high school as I am teaching an adult. I can teach everything from basic composition to upper level technical writing.


  • Reading and writing are a huge part of my life inside and outside the classroom. I'm always in the middle of reading a book, ideally a page turner, and I'm always engaged in a personal writing project, whether it's drafting lessons, writing poetry, or polishing the novel for which I'm seeking a literary agent.


  • I also enjoy yoga, cooking, crafting, gardening, karaoke, music, and movies. A lifelong learner, I enjoy discovering the world with my 14-year-old son. Whether we're exploring in Minecraft, watching documentaries, taking walks, or writing stories, we have a lot of fun!
